Appearance is a motor oil black with a nice tan head, very nice.

Smell is strong roasted coffee and chocolate, straight forward but strong!

Taste is so good, just as the nose taste is strong roasted coffee, malts, a bit of vanilla, oats and bitter creamy chocolate, some woody smoke. One of the best, or probably the best tasting beer I've ever had.

Mouthfeel is wonderful, nice very full bodied thick and creamy beer.

Overall, to me this beer is perfect for me...such a well balanced great tasting brew. I'm giving this all 5's across the board.

Poured from a 355 ml bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.

Appearance: Pours a cola colour but somewhat viscous leaving only a very minimal caramel coloured head which dissipated very quickly leaving a collar which lasted the remainder of the time the brew was in my glass.

Smell: Dark bitter chocolate and coffee.

Taste: Flavours are a wonderful mix of bitter coffee and dark chocolate and a slight sweetness, with the oatmeal lending more to a smooth and creamy feel in my mouth than flavour. Also a slight flavour of hops comes through in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation is in the low to mid-range with a mild bite with each sip.
